Live at #HIMSS19, I spoke with Mark Morsch, VP Technology at Optum 360. Optum is using NLP to improve clinical documentation, harness data to stratify risk, and eventually free clinicians for deeper connections with patients at the office visit. I also spoke with Hudson Harris, Harris Logic, who is working to ensure development of a common language in mental health and suicide prevention as there is in general medicine so that we can leverage the benefits of structured data in these domains.
